According to the “spirit-filled” crackpots who give “prophetic insight” at Charisma magazine, God is adding to that “full armor” thing by equipping Donald Trump with a “flaming torch” that will illuminate the plots and schemes of his enemies and allow him to defeat them.
But it’s an invisible flaming sword, you see, like the invisible, non-corporeal dragon in Carl Sagan’s garage. You can’t see it, you can’t detect it, he can’t offer any evidence of its existence or that this “god” told him any of this. So why, exactly, should anyone believe it? Oh, and God is the one who is responsible for the high turnover in the Trump administration too:
As I was praying about all of this over the last three weeks, this is what the Lord said:
Over the President of the United States
“I have released a flaming torch that will go before you. This torch will reveal the snares of your enemy before you step your foot. This torch will outnumber your adversaries to the hundreds. I have set before you a flame that will not burn out. This flame will incinerate the entangled cords and secretly hidden snares that have been set within your path. You will not trip over stones, nor will you fall into deep pits. I have lit the way before you. I will take one mistake from your enemies and cause it to go into another mistake; even then I will still reveal one more. Your enemies will walk from mistake to mistake. I have released a flaming torch that has gone before you; this burning flame will be like a ‘bull-shark of a man’ against your adversaries. He will route your enemies into retreat and defeat.
“Many have said ‘I believe this person should go; I believe that person should leave.’ But this is NOT what I have said in all cases. Even this summer I will say who should leave and who should stay. You will hear people all over say, ‘Did you hear the news. Did you see the news? I can’t believe this person is leaving. Who would have thought this person would go?'”
I’ll ask the obvious question: If God is in control of all of this, and those people need to go, why didn’t God just miracle or magic something to put the right person in those positions in the first place? Oh darn, I forgot — mysterious ways. Who are we to question the wisdom of God? Of course, I’m not not questioning God, I’m questioning people who claim that God speaks to them. They’re the ones spouting the nonsense. As far as I can tell, no deities were involved in any way whatsoever.
